Transcripts

Official and unofficial copies of a student’s transcript are available by request from the Registrar’s Office. Currently enrolled students may also access their unofficial transcript online by logging into Self-Service.

Transcript requests for students with holds on their account will not be processed; holds that will prevent a transcript from being printed or accessed through Self-Service are placed by Financial Aid or Business Services. When a transcript is requested for an account with a hold, the requester is notified via email regarding what type of hold is active. The office placing the hold must clear the hold before the transcript can be released; the Registrar’s Office does not clear such holds.

For students who have matriculated into or graduated from more than one program, or have also taken Extension Education courses through the School of Education and Counseling Psychology or DominicanCA Online, the transcript of record will include all of their coursework. Transcripts cannot be requested for only part of a student’s record.

Official Transcripts

Official transcripts include the name of the University, and bear the school seal and the University Registrar’s signature. They are individually sealed in official transcript envelopes, and printed on special security paper.

For current information regarding the fees for official transcripts, please see the Registrar’s Office website at www.dominican.edu.

Unofficial Transcripts

Unofficial transcripts do not bear the University seal or the signature of the University Registrar. They are printed on plain paper, and are not mailed in official transcript envelopes. Unofficial transcripts are provided free of charge. Current students without an account hold can view their unofficial transcript through Self-Service; former students must request their unofficial transcript.

Requesting Transcripts

Official and unofficial transcripts are requested through the Dominican University ordering site at the National Student Clearinghouse, found at https://www.studentclearinghouse.org/secure_area/transccript/login.asp?FILEcode=00119600.

Transcripts requested through this service are printed by the Registrar’s Office, during normal business hours. There is no limit to the quantity of transcripts that can be ordered at one time.

Standard processing time for official transcripts is 5-10 business days after receipt of the request; for unofficial transcripts, it is 1 business day. Transcripts are available for pickup in the Registrar’s Office, or can be mailed to the designated recipient via first class US mail. For information regarding faster processing times or mailing options, including additional fees for these services, please see the Registrar’s Office website.
